Hi List

I also will comment on my first meteorite, but later, but I would like to
know how the recovery of Walter Zeitschel is coming along.
I would like to be sure that our American friends do not forget to send some
greetings his way.
If you don't know Walter Z. then maybe Michael Hoffman could send his report
along, translated maybe, of his visit with him just a month ago.

May you Walter recover quickly,

Sincerely, Moni
